Geri Jewell is the stand-up comedian with cerebral palsey who went on to fame on The Facts of Life (as Cousin Geri) and more recently on Deadwood.

Well, I've gotten my paws on her memoirs, I'm Walking as Straight as I Can, and in it, Geri remembers wearing a leather cock ring as a bracelet in the wacky '80s.

She says she didn't know what the thing was, she simply thought it was "cool and funky" without realizing it may have read "hot and dykey."

I always knew what it was, but I wore it anyway!

Also in the book...

Geri talks about becoming friends with another disabled comic, Kathy Buckley.

As Geri explains, "Not only was Kathy hearing-impaired, but like me, she was molested as a child and grew up facing ridicule and humiliation. She overcame colon cancer and was run over by a Jeep while sunbathing."

Can't wait to read her book.

Two more things: Geri says she's gay but tried being straight with a husband. No good -- it's back to the hot and dykey.

And the foreword is by Patty Duke, who compares Geri's cerebral palsy with her own bi-polarity.

Well, I read her book and it was amazing.

I bet Geri wasn't out to Lisa or Lisa would have started shrieking and bible thumping.

PS: Geri is good friend with "Facts" costar Lisa Whelchel, though once Geri made a joke to Lisa, saying that a sitcom about them has just been greenlighted called "The Gimp and the Blimp."

Lisa threw Geri out of the car and drove off.

I know their characters were close but bible thumping Blair? She's not going on about how being gay is a so-called sin? Color me shocked. I imagine Geri wouldn't be able to have the same close friendship with Full House's Candace Cameron-Bure.
